Oh right, I forgot.
youtube isn't letting me slow down videos anymore, not sure why. I checked and tried to re-enable the html5 test feature thingy like I'd done before and gotten it to work, but it isn't letting me do anything. And he's too fast to just watch and see what he does at normal speed :/

it depends on the upload date and things like that.

Sorry to bump this up but I've been trying to learn Keyhole but I don't how to do the centers (I've learnt everything else). Can someone please give me a detailed description on how to solve the centres for the Keyhole method? Thanks.

Thanks for the bump haha :)

basically once you have 2 of the 3 edges around 1 center, you use the non-solved slot to rotate the remaining centers into the proper orientation, if that makes sense. If you subscribe to CubingWorld on youtube, I actually will be having a detailed keyhole tutorial coming in Season 3. I'm not really sure how to explain it with just text...

What is a good follow up to the lbl method. I avg like 9-10 with lbl and like 15-16 with oka. Thus, I use lbl. How should I improve my times? Using lbl ofc.
If you don't already, try to blockbuild the first layer to reduce your movecount. Work on inspection, try to plan as much as you possibly can. Make sure you can recognise L3E cases instantly, and execute them quickly.

Disclaimer: I don't use LBL, but these are just general tips so it shouldn't matter.

That would be awesome, I'll be watching out! :)

Just one question, do you have t make the '2 edges around the center on the same face? (eg, if i made the 2 edges around the 1 center BLUE, does it have to be on the face with the 3 blue corners?

By the way, when will the video be posted, roughly?

Pyraminx methods.

Hi guys, I was looking up the Speedsolving wiki's Pyraminx method page, and it mentions a method called Fan's Pyraminx or Face Permute method. I Googled it further to see if there were algorithms, but alas, I was left empty handed. So, does anybody have algorithms for this method? Its not that I cant get fast with LBL (4.xy), it's just that I would like to try a new method.

Cheers
